Revenue Collection and Utility Billing

Due to the current outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) it has become necessary for the City of Mount Holly to take certain steps for the sake of protecting the public and its employees. Much like other jurisdictions throughout the country, there are certain protocols that are being instituted and implemented. City Hall is now closed to the public, until further notice. 

**UTILITY PAYMENT UPDATE: The City of Mount Holly realizes that many of our customers are facing unusual financial hardships as a result of the pandemic. That's why we've taken several measures to help lessen the strain. We've suspended residential disconnections for non-payment as of March 31, 2020. The City is also suspending fees associated with residential late payments from March 31, 2020 for the next 60 days. The City will extend payment plans to those who request. We are currently developing options for our citizens, please call our office if you have an immediate need. We will keep you updated as new information develops. We encourage all customers to stay as current as possible with their payments to avoid building up a large balance that may be difficult to manage later.
If your utility services are currently disconnected for non-payment, please contact our office, 704-827-3931 or email

UTILITIES PAYMENTS: Please utilize our online payment website (click here). Or payments can be mailed or placed in the drop box located in front of the Police Department.
